Smart Bus: CoMoSef

Otokar, KoçSistem and İSBAK have completed Co-Operative Mobility Services of the Future (Co-MoSeF);  the smart mobility technologies project which will pioneer the period of internet of things. The goal of this project conducted according to European Union’s Eureka Celtic-Plus is to provide safe driving by transferring road, weather and traffic information to vehicles. Thanks to this system developed according to the project that aims to create future’s smart traffic systems, vehicles will be able to communicate with each other, get in contact with roadside units, and obtain instant real time information from traffic signalization systems. Data that will be obtained via CoMoSeF that will significantly enable traffic management in metropolises will be used to enhance driving safety and support traffic management. It is planned to provide this information to driver, passenger and traffic authorities via mobile applications and services.

Electric Bus

Electric Bus

Doruk Electra, Turkey’s first electric bus, claims to offer environmentally cleaner performance, lower noise emission, reduced operating costs, and greater efficiency.
With zero emissions, and very low levels of noise and vibration, the Doruk Electra can be fully charged in 6 to 8 hours; indeed, thanks to the onboard charger it can also be charged while waiting at bus stops. The bus has a range of 280 kms when fully charged, and it is possible to increase this by 30 to 40% with intermittent charging throughout the day. And being equipped with an on-board charger, the Doruk Electra doesn’t require an extra charging system, and can be charged anywhere with industrial type three phase electric power.
Doruk Electra, Turkey’s first electric bus, was introduced to the public in 2012.
